Watch Dogs 2 release date has been leaked

The release date for Watch Dogs 2 has been leaked ahead of its E3 reveal, according to a site banner on IGN.

Yesterday Ubisoft released a brief teaser trailer for Watch Dogs 2, and details on the title are already starting to appear online.

The above image reveals a bunch of information about the game, including its 2016 release date.

According to the banner, Watch Dogs 2 will launch on November 15, 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, and will take place in sunny San Francisco.

The character featured in the banner, presumably the game’s protagonist, also matches images posted by the actor on Instagram earlier this year.

It’s no surprise that Ubisoft plans to launch Watch Dogs 2 in 2016, since the Assassin’s Creed franchise is taking the year off, leaving the publisher with big shoes to fill.

We can expect a more comprehensive reveal at E3 2016 alongside a slew of new gameplay details.
